Executive Inn & Suites Embarcadero Cove - Oakland Waterfront

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a Best Western owned hotel. They look at first to have all the normal executive suite amenities, but you realize they don’t after a very short while. Shower had no door so Br floor was always wet. Toilet seat put your cheeks to sleep and I’m not overweight. Instead of a closet, you get an open in both sides divider that the BR door keeps opening into. There were only a few small drawers for your clothes built into the TV stand along with the safe, fridge and microwave. Then, there is the sub-par continental breakfast. Now they did have a nice fruit selection, but everything else was lacking. Hilton’s CB isn’t great, but far superior to this. Basically, they need to hire someone that retired from Hilton and get some pointers.

Check in was fast and easy. New remodel of lobby is beautiful. Breakfast was nice and convenient. Staff is friendly.

Basic hotel, very well situated if looking for a location with easy access to Oakland and Bay Area

The hotel was great and most of the staff as well. Wish check out time would be extended to at least noon.

It was my 1st time visiting Oakland, this was an awesome hotel. I fell in love with the bed, thee most comfortable bed ever, with a gorgeous view. Breakfast every morning was very good as well. Will definitely be coming back!!!

Very nice hotel. Quiet, clean, updated and the staff was awesome! Continental breakfast was very good.Say hi! to Gonzo the bartender! Good time!

Not too bad, decent for a quick stay. Freeway noise is pretty loud for the city view rooms, unless you are a deep sleeper.

Room too small, jacuzzi is cold, security is strict no in and outs of hotel, the people charge a extra $50 for the room, i felt a little bit of being accused cause i was black

quick checkin and out. room is clean but noisy facing highway. breakfast has kind of few items though.

Easy check-in and check-out. Standard breakfast fare. Got ride to and from the city and drivers were very prompt and helpful. Short drive to a nice seafood restaurant. Construction underway in the lobby but not a problem for us.

Had a very comfortable stay at this hotel. Rooms are quiet. The view is nice by the water. Would definitely stay here again in the future.

The hotel is in a great location, just off the freeway. Everyone was very nice and helpful. The breakfast & dinner was delicious. The room was very comfortable & clean. The construction was the only nuisance.

Too noisy. Can't sleep. Breakfast is not good. The location is not safe.

Although this property is located directly next to the freeway it is surprisingly quiet. We were in a corner room with only one wall sharing with another room. It was a very peaceful and quiet stay that served it's purpose for the day.

This hotel was excellent! The staff were so friendly and accommodating and I loved that they had a shuttle! It went back and forth to the airport and Barts! We came for the game and it was so awesome to see all the Raiders stuff around! The hotel and room were in excellent condition! Thanks again and we will definitely be back again!

Love the breakfast and the large rooms - oceanfront

The hotel itself is nice, but it is way too noisy. First, make sure you get a room on the water side. Our room was on the street side and it was extremely loud. We could hear the police pulling people off of the freeway and the roaring of cars non stop. Second, do not stay on the second floor. If there are meetings or conventions going on, you can hear clapping and other activity. Third, if you're going to use their shuttle service, book it way in advance. We tried to use it and there was a 4 hour wait. We liked the breakfast, which was pretty standard, and the bartender made pretty good drinks. Bottom line, if you can't get a room on the water side, don't stay here.

We had such a nice experience at this hotel. The staff could not have been nicer. The waterfront King suite was a good size room with a comfy bed and a balcony with a pretty view. We did not have a vehicle, but the location offers free parking and a hot breakfast. The breakfast was adequate with eggs, a meat or potatoes and make your own waffles. We love those waffles, but I was not crazy about the egg dishes. Boiled eggs were my option. If you expect to use mass transit to get into the city the hotel provides a shuttle with three stops throughout the city of Oakland. Peak times can be busy so schedule your request as soon as possible, but mid morning and mid afternoon requests are usually not a problem. This hotel also offers a bar, on location, and every evening has steak dinners available for a nominal price. Although, we did not partake, the dinner looked good served with potatoes and fresh vegetables and the hotel staff was recommending it.

Great location to reach all Bay Area destinations.

I stay here often because it it convenient for work. Pleasant and not too noisy unless your room is above the restaurant

Hello. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We apologize for the noise. For your next stay with us, we highly recommend booking a waterside room. They are perfect for those sensitive to roadway noise. Thank you again for staying with us.
